Michael Lewis, Ph.D. is University Distinguished Professor of Pediatrics and Psychiatry, and Director of the Institute for the Study of Child Development at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. He also is Professor of Psychology, Education, Cognitive Science, and Biomedical Engineering at Rutgers University . His research has focused on normal and deviant emotional and intellectual development. His early work focused on the normal course of children's intellectual growth. He related this to changes in the organization of central nervous system functioning, and he developed the habituation-dishabituation paradigm for measuring dysfunctional and normal cognitive development. Based on these measures, Dr. Lewis developed a computer-based technique for enhancing intellectual ability in children suffering from a variety of disorders associated with retardation.

Dr. Lewis has served and currently serves on many national committees such as American Foundation of Maternal and Child Health, International Association for Infant Mental Health, William T. Grant Foundation National Consortium on Infant Stress, New Jersey's Governor's Council on Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities, and Center for Advancement of Health. Among his honors, Dr. Lewis received the 2009 Urie Bronfenbrenner Award for Lifetime Contribution to Developmental Psychology in the Service of Science and Society from the American Psychological Association. He is a Fellow of the New York Academy of Sciences, American Psychological Association, and American Association of the Advancement of Science, as well as the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science. In 1995, he was ranked by a University of Notre Dame study number 1 in terms of the impact of scientists who are most referenced and productive in the field of developmental sciences. In 2012 The New York Zero-to-Three Network honored Dr. Lewis with the Hedi Levenback Pioneer award.
